DAY 1: BANGKOK

Welcome to Thailand, the land of smiles! Upon your arrival at the International Airport, you will be welcomed and greeted by your guide and you are escorted to your chosen hotel in Bangkok.

Your guide will conduct a quick tour briefing after you check in to remind you of some important things before your actual tour start the next day. Please remember that hotel check-in times are after midday – unless the hotel has some rooms already available. If you do arrive early you can leave your luggage at the reception and we would encourage you to get out and explore Bangkok – but please take a hotel business card so that you will be able to find your way back. Before leaving the hotel, please contact the hotel reception staff to take a note to advise your room number for your tour leader and if you already have any other contact details please provide them as well. For those interested, your tour guide will be happy to escort you to a local restaurant to sample the delights of Thai cuisine and toast to a great start of what will be an unforgettable journey in Thailand.

DAY 2: BANGKOK

Today you will be picked up after enjoying your breakfast in your hotel to start off to a city tour through the vibrant metropolis Bangkok. We will visit the landmarks of the country, the famous temples down at the Chao Phraya River. The popular Grand Palace and the (literally) stunning Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) is a must.

For savoring a delicious lunch we stop at the Sala Rattanakosin Restaurant with a fantastic view of the Wat Arun on the other side of the river.

Later in the day we lead you along the quiet green klong paths that will show you the Bangkok of 3 decades ago. At night the city is buzzing with activity – take in a performance at the Calypso Cabaret, Bangkok’s famous transvestite show, watch a Muay Thai bout (kickboxing) or take a leisurely evening cruise on the Chao Phraya River.

Today the remaining ruins are an important relic of history.We will explore the Historical Park by mountain bike which was declared to be an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
